Topping the list was a transaction on the Quadram Institute in Colney for a staggering £12.78m. This architectural unique building, which opened in 2018, houses the British centre for research and training in food science and health with 300 scientists.
In second position came 150-160 Mile Cross Lane, the former Comet superstore which sold for £4.85m and then a nursing home in Horsford in third place, after selling for £4.18m.
Also making the list was Rainthorpe Hall, a stunning Elizabethan manor house boasting 12 bedrooms and situated in almost 19 acres of gardens and grounds. It sold for £2.175m, less than the pricetag in 2018 of £2.4m.
Another interesting sale in the list was the Hethel Engineering Centre which sold for £2.132m.

The building was originally for sale for £2.7m.
The former Allied Bakeries dept, Diamond Road, sold for £2m - this was bought by a London-based developer last year hoping to build 17 industrial units on the site. Morningthorpe Manor, once owned by historian, the late Ron Fiske, sold for £1.55m, originally marketed for £1.695m, and the Old Vicarage, Horning also sold for £1.55m.
